The Silverado Skyhawks took on the Desert Oasis Diamondbacks and from the very first series showed why they are the class of the 4A Division en route to a 76-20 win. The Skyhawks scored on their fourth play of the game, a 50-yard run from running back Caden Harris. Harris, who had three rushing touchdowns in the first half en route to a 54-13 halftime lead.

Against the Diamondbacks last Friday night, Silverado once again scored on all three phases, offense, defense, and on a punt return for a touchdown, showing why they are one of the most balanced teams in Las Vegas. On the season, the Skyhawks outscored their league opponents 315-38. They are the clear-cut favorites for the 4A crown, as they get ready for the playoffs.

In a game that was supposed to decide the Class 5A Desert League title, Bishop Gorman showed once again why they are the top-ranked team in the FSM Prep Rally Top 10. As they have all year against their Vegas competition, the Gaels ended the game in the first 5 minutes. Sophomore quarterback Micah Alejado connected with Zachariah Branch for an 86-yard touchdown just three minutes into the game. The route was on from there.

Gorman scored on each of its first-half possessions to take a 43-0 lead into halftime. Alejado completed all seven of his first-half passes for 208 yards and 3 touchdowns while throwing touchdown passes to Maleik Pabon and Elijah Lofton.


Liberty once again showed why they are the defending champions:

UNLV commit quarterback Jayden Maiava passed for 218 yards and three touchdowns, and Germie Bernard has a 72-yard touchdown, returned a punt for a 65-yard touchdown for Liberty in their 49-7 rout of the Jaguars. The Patriots took a 42-0 lead with 1:36 left in the second quarter, prompting the referee to immediately call for a running clock rather than wait until the second half.

We stressed all week that we wanted to win this game in dominating fashion and to win a division championship and start getting ready for the playoffs,” Liberty head coach Rich Muraco said. “I felt like this was our best game we’ve played all year. We’re peaking at the right time.”

He’s (Bernard) the best player in the state, in my opinion,” Muraco said. “He can be an all-state safety if he wanted to be. He can be a running back, quarterback, receiver, whatever he wants to be.”


Finally, I want to tell you how you can get your pictures on FSM.
